We all care about our research. We think our projects are cool, our data is important, and the answers to our questions will save the world. We know the lingo, speak the language, and understand the background. We are immersed in our topic 24/7, 365 days a year, for what feels like forever. So when asked why other people should care about my research, and to explain it in only 60 seconds, I really had to stop and think. Because why WOULDN’T everyone care?!
